Leeks & Sprouts with Edamame and Israeli Couscous

Leeks & Sprouts with Edamame and Israeli Couscous

Introduction

I had never purchased a leek before making this recipe and I already am craving it again. What I love about SparkPeople meal plans is the concept of combining foods in units so that I can make nearly anything and know as I'm making it that it will be within the range of my assigned meal plan if I just use the right building blocks. I made up this recipe but I'm sure that a recipe just like it exists somewhere in the world, the flavors are made for one another.
